Julius Ibukun Agboola recently concluded a postdoctoral fellowship programme at the UNU Institute of Advanced Studies (UNU-IAS) having worked and conducted research with the UNU-IAS Ishikawa/Kanazawa Operating Unit on marine governance and coastal management and satoumi related studies. He currently lectures and carries out research at the Department of Fisheries and the Centre for Environment and Science Education at Lagos State University in Lagos, Nigeria. Agboola is intrigued by how humans can better relate with the sea for sustainable use and management of marine resources, exploring the synergies between land and ocean, and socio-ecological systems variations and environmental change impact on coastal systems. He holds an M.Sc. in Environmental Resource Management and a Ph.D. in Environmental Science from Hokkaido University, Japan.
